Oldies Reach Out To Youngsters 2009: Changed Lives

Oldies reach out to youngsters

It has changed the lives of many older people in Bath.
But now it is reaching out to younger generations. The Golden-Oldies, a charity set up to encourage elderly people to sing, was launched in the city last year. Since it started, it has brought happiness to hundreds of elderly people, and more than 40 singing groups have been set up across the South West. This week, a group of Goldies, as they have become known, were invited to St Gregory’s Catholic College at Odd Down to perform to pupils. Forty Goldies from Blagdon Park at Southdown, which was one of the first groups set up by the charity, sang a selection of songs from the 50s, 60s and 70s. Among the hits performed was the song that has become their anthem, Jeff Beck’s Hi Ho Silver Lining.
The show for year seven, eight and nine pupils was their first performance as a choir and founder Grenville Jones said he was delighted to have been invited to the school.
